Why We Should Give?

"It is more blessed to give than to receive." - Acts 20:35 (KJV)

Christmas is observed by everyone, young and old. And all those who believe that there is God who is too generous, loving, kind and merciful. And it is in this month of December where Christmas season is celebrated; the spirit of giving fills the air.

I believe that it is indeed more blesses for those who give. After all we should give back what we have and our life as an offering.

The more you give the, more blessings that would flow to you. We should really always be on the lookout on people we can help as it can make a world of difference.

I wish, next time I give a gift to somebody they won't be picky about it and just understand the true meaning of what I've gifted to him/her.
